OOSHIMA won over YAUCHI . (Ginga sen)

Shogi News; The 17th Ginga sen G block .

A game of Ginga sen between YAUCHI and OOSHIMA was broadcasted 23 October 2008 .

12. P-3f G-(5b)4c
(diagram 1)


OOSHIMA led the opening to "Ittezon Kakukawari" but YAUCHI declined it by P-6f . The game transpositioned to "Yagura" opening and diagram became just Sente-Gote reversed to "Shin Yagura Niju-yon te gumi" . Many professional shogi players perhaps think this formation is relatively not so good for Sente .

(diagram 2)






OOSHIMA advanced his right silver to 7c and exchanged 7th file Pawn by bishop . This moves set is preparation of making one of the formation of "Yagura Kuzushi" .

YAUCHI also advanced her Silver to 3g , but she didn't exchange 3rd file Pawn . I think she should do so . Then only OOSHIMA could make "Yagura Kuzushi" formation and YAUCHI delayed making her attacking formation .

OOSHIMA continued attacking YAUCHI's camp with "Yagura Kuzushi" formation and YAUCHI had only a few chance to attack OOSHIMA's camp .

After 82 moves OOSHIMA won this game .

SATO won over FUKUZAKI with"Gokigen Nakabisha". (NHK cup)

Shogi News; The 58th NHK cup TV Shogi tournament .

A game of NHK cup tournament between SATO and FUKUZAKI was broadcasted 19 October 2008 .

(diagram 1)




SATO was a standard "Ibisha" player before , but now he likes to use "Rikisen" style "Furibisha" . In this game SATO selected "Gokigen Nakabisha" as the opening .

FUKUZAKI is famous as a player of "Anaguma" both in "Furibisha" and "Ibisha" .
He selecte G-7h variation that prepared Bishop exchange .

SATO moved the Bishop at 3c , to transpositon the opening to "Wanpaku Nakabisha" , and FUKUZAKI immediately exchanged Bishops . SATO ranged his Rook to 2b . It seemed that Sente could drop his Bishop in hand to 5c square .

FUKUZAKI didn't drop his Bishop at 5c . If he dropped the Bishop at 5c , how would SATO reply ? I want to know it . The details may be written in NHK shogi kouza magazin .

FUKUZAKI moved his King to 5h! and he prepared to attack SATO's king in front of SATO's "Ginkanmuri" . SATO started attacking in 2nd file with P-2d .

YAMADA (amateur) won over MATSUURA pro . (Ginga sen)

(diagram 1)




YAMADA selected "Yonteme San-San Kaku" senpou as an opening of this game . In most case of this opening , most of players as Sente have exchanged Bishops ; Bx3c+ , but MATSUURA didn't . So, YAMADA moved S-3b , and he could reply Bishop exchange with good shape ; Bx3c+ Bx3c , Sx3c . MATSUURA closed the Bishop line ; P-6f and the game turned quiet .

During they made their camp advancing , MATSUURA's camp became "Kani gakoi" and YAMADA's camp became "Hidari mino" once .

Both players advanced their camp and finished making "Yagura gakoi". YAMADA made one of the form of "Yagura Kuzushi" . The combination of B-8d , S-7d , N-7c , R-6b is very effective to break "Yagura gakoi" . After YAMADA finished the attacking formation , MATSUURA still uncompleted his attacking formation . YAMADA started attacking with P-6e .

OONO beated TSUBOUCHI's "Sanken Bisha" with "Ibisha Anaguma".(Ginga sen)

(diagram 1)




In this game , TSUBOUCHI pushed 9th file Pawn in early stage of game . What does this move mean ? Such an early 1st or 9th file Pawn push is sometimes seen in the games of "Furibisha" players . Why they push a Pawn like this game ? Because some "Furibisha" players dislike an "Ai Furibisha" game .

If the opponent selects "Furibisha" , such a player will select "Ibisha" . In the other hand , if the opponent selects "Ibisha" , he will select "Furibisha" . In both cases , the game will advance "Furibisha" vs "Ibisha" .

After OONO shown the attitude to select "Ibisha" with 2...P-8d , TSUBOUCHI decided to select "Furibisha" . And OONO started making "Ibisha Anaguma" , the most effective tactics against closed and standard "Furibisha" .

While OONO was making "Ibisha Anaguma" , TSUBOUCHI tried making "ISHIDA ryu" formation , but he couldn't . If he moved 16.N-7g , OONO would move B-4b . The Pawn at 7e is difficult to save and the Rook at 7f may be captured , so TSUBOUCHI backed his Rook at 7h again .
(ISHIDA ryu ; a formation with R-7f and N-7g . Bishop is free to positon like 9g , 5g, 3g .)

After exchanging 5th file Pawn , OONO made his "Ibisha Anaguma" more safty advanced and became "Ginkanmuri Anaguma" .

In this game , HORIGUCHI also tried making "Ibisha Anaguma" .

KUBO is a famous "Furibisha" player , especially he is very good at "Gokigen Nakabisha" as Gote . But in this game , ABE declined KUBO's "Gokigen Nakabisha" by 2.K-6h .
(If you want to know more detail , please see my other blog .)

K-6h is not always good move in case of opponent's "Ibisha" . So , KUBO pushed his Rook Pawn and shown that he might select "Ibisha" , and replying it ABE closed Bishop line;P-6f once and tried makeing the game quiet one . Finally KUBO ranged his Rook to 4b and the opening became Gote "Shiken Bisha" .

ABE reopened the Bishop line ; P-6e and this move got Pawn's good position ; Kurai in 6th file . If the game became quiet , the move P-6e will be more effective . So , KUBO had an attacking attitude without preventing opponent's Bishop dropping at 8b . Then the game beame very rough one .
